I watched The Brain Eaters a couple of weeks ago. Fun film, considering what must have been a tiny budget. I never thought of it as noir while I watched it, though. Looking forward to Revenge of the Virgins, when it posts.

If not, it's about as close to noir as a sci-fi film can get. That, Not of this Earth, and a few others would probably qualify. I guess it depends upon what we (subjectively) consider to be noir (lots of DVDs released in recent years as "film noir" aren't, by most accounts, and were given that tag just to cash in on a surge in public interest), but Brain Eaters is certainly a very dark and nihilistic film. Bruno did okay I think, with only $18,000 or thereabouts.

Robert Heinlein sued the producers of "The Brain Eaters" for ripping off his novel, "The Puppet Masters". Guess he couldn't sue the writer, Gordon Urquart, because he died before the film came out.

Leonard Nimoy was in it, wasn't he? And wasn't he also in the serial "Zombies of the Stratosphere"?

Yeah, but the only way to recognize Nimoy in Brain Eaters is by his voice. He was a lot easier to recognize in Zombies of the Stratosphere.
